Leeds 6 started life as an Hull open topper 96 before being enclosed. It later became a works Tram in which condition it was sold to Leeds, renumbered 6 and painted grey - this is the condition it is currently in. After a three year loan at Beamish the tram returned to Heaton Park on 4th April and is currently stored outside in a specially constructed compound. It requires some remedial attention before it can be returned to service.
5 is a 4 wheel open top Stockport tram currently on loan to Heaton Park Tramway from itís owning group the Stockport 5 Tramcar Trust.

It was formerly Replica Vanguard 619 but now has a new identity following workshop attention and repaint over winter 2010/1. It was officially relaunched into service on Sunday 24th April 2011. The tram is currently stored outside the main Depot with suitable precautions taken and although operational is not available for service.
